The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.

It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.

@aral I think both approaches have value. Best to think of the current #fedivere as a stepping stone.

The outcome is balence between Client/server as society is a balance between social and individual.

We need to respect diversity in our social change/challenge.

Stepping/bridge :)



@witchescauldron Indeed, that’s exactly how I see it :)
